Following on from the announcement of “The Metallica Blacklist”, a massive covers album celebrating 30 years of The Black Album, St Vincent’s cover of “Sad But True” has landed on streaming services. The full cover album will arrive on 1st October.

The cover will sit alongside 52 other tracks from the likes of Jason Isbell, Rina Sawayama, Phoebe Bridgers, The Hu, Idles, Moses Sumney, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, Chase & Status and Igor Levit.

Alongside the announcement of the covers album, Metallica also revealed the plan to remaster and reissue the original Black Album. The remastered Black Album will land in multiple configurations including digitally, as a 180-gram 2LP, a standard CD, a 3CD expanded edition and a limited-edition boxset. This set includes the album remastered on 180G 2LP, a picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs (containing rough mixes, demos, interviews, live shows), six DVDs (containing outtakes, behind the scenes, official videos, live shows), a 120-page hardcover book, four tour laminates, three lithos, three guitar picks, a Metallica lanyard, a folder with lyric sheets, and a download card for the digital edition of the album.

The launch of The Metallica Blacklist also came alongside the release of Miley Cyrus’ version of Nothing Else Matters, featuring WATT, Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Robert Trujillo and Chad Smith.

St Vincent’s take on Sad But True features her trademark vocal style, as well as her off-kilter lead playing.
